No. 7 Louisville women run past Ball State 105-67
Shoni Schimmel had 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, and Sara Hammond scored 11 of her 13 points in the first five minutes as No. 7 Louisville overwhelmed Ball State 105-67 Tuesday night.
The Cardinals (11-1) have won four straight and tied the school's single-season record for games with 90 or more points. Louisville already has done that eight times this season, matching its 1990-91 total. It also has topped 100 points four times.
Jill Morrison had 17 points and Nathalie Fontaine finished with 14 to lead Ball State (3-6), which has lost two straight. Ball State was trying to upset its first ranked opponent since a stunning win over Tennessee in the 2009 NCAA tournament.
Louisville opened the game on a 22-2 run, extended the lead to 60-29 at halftime and never allowed Ball State to get closer than 29 in the second half.
